Where are you?[edit]

Hi Lysy, I just want to say that you are missed here on Wikipedia. Hope you are OK and hope to see you back. I know, trolls are a real pain in the ..., but surely you can stand them. Life is full of trolls, and yet we live it. Tymek (talk) 04:12, 3 September 2008 (UTC)

polonized vs de-germanized at recovered territories article[edit]

Please excuse my revert, but Polonized fits much better. De-Germanisation implies to recreate the state before the Germanization (11th century), which was certainly not the case. The territories rather underwent Polonization: everything changed Polish (names, people, etc pp). Regards Skäpperöd (talk) 20:07, 1 December 2008 (UTC)


You were mentioned and thanked by Greg in his final remark (I just found about it today by accident). Read his post here.--Piotr Konieczny aka Prokonsul Piotrus| talk 20:46, 10 February 2009 (UTC)

Wikipedia:WikiProject Poland[edit]

Congratulations. Wikipedia:WikiProject Poland has reviewed your contributions and decided you are an active member. Thank you for your encyclopedic contributions! But creating content by yourself is only part of the collaborative Wikipedia user experience, there is an active community of editors discussing how to better improve the Poland-related content; please consider joining our discussions at Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Poland. There are many editors who would like to work more closely with you, benefit from your insight, and help you with their experience! PS. Please also consider editing your entry in our participants list to state your areas of expertise/interest. --Piotr Konieczny aka Prokonsul Piotrus| talk 19:01, 24 March 2009 (UTC)

Fed. of Expellees[edit]


I reverted two of your edits in the Federation of Expellees article. The Spiegel story was reflected differently by Polska and FAZ which is now sourced and in the "federation today" section, so the other paragraph you inserted (unintentionally) turned out to be be an unsourced POV fork. The second edit I reverted was about the Nazi Soviet population transfers. You are right that the Soviet Union did not occupy the Baltic states immediately after the pact and subsequent invasion of Poland, yet the Molotov Ribbentrop pact had defined the areas which were to be Soviet/Nazi controlled without leaving a territorial buffer. The "evacuation" of the Baltic Germans was made in apprehension of the Soviet take-over and only from those parts "assigned" (by Hitler/Ribbentrop and Stalin/Molotov) to the Soviet Union. The exact time of the actual military take-over was thereby unimportant. I hope you see my rationale, regards Skäpperöd (talk) 10:29, 7 April 2009 (UTC)

Yes, it is an interesting issue (though sort of a "dark" kind of interesting ...). Regarding the Baltic German and related resettlements, that is is covered in History of German settlement in Eastern Europe, but not in great detail. I recently developed Polish areas annexed by Nazi Germany, covering (at least partially) their temporary resettlement and the contemporary expulsions/deportations/murder of resident Poles and Jews. Also there are articles on the Baltic Germans themselves and the Nazi-Soviet population transfer, which for sure could need an expansion. So if you got time and sources ....

Proposed deletion of Tamka[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

A proposed deletion template has been added to the article Tamka, suggesting that it be deleted according to the proposed deletion process because of the following concern:

No cliam of importance

All contributions are appreciated, but this article may not satisfy Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion, and the deletion notice should explain why (see also "What Wikipedia is not" and Wikipedia's deletion policy). You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{dated prod}} notice, but please explain why you disagree with the proposed deletion in your edit summary or on its talk page.

Please consider improving the article to address the issues raised because, even though removing the deletion notice will prevent deletion through the proposed deletion process, the article may still be deleted if it matches any of the speedy deletion criteria or it can be sent to Articles for Deletion, where it may be deleted if consensus to delete is reached. TurningWork (talk) 19:23, 20 April 2009 (UTC)

Hi Lysy, can you provide any reference supporting why this street is more historically signifigant than any other in warsaw, without sources to support it's importance, it's still potentially a deletion candidate. TurningWork (talk) 18:57, 24 April 2009 (UTC)

Jochen Böhler[edit]

Hi! It seems you recently created an unreferenced biography of a living person: Jochen Böhler. Our verifiability policy requires that all content be cited to a reliable source. Please add references as soon as possible. Thanks! --LaraBot (talk) 00:10, 28 July 2009 (UTC)

brutal mass murder[edit]

All murder is brutal, no? It's redundant and adds undue weight. The first sentence of the paragraph says its ethnic cleansing. Would "deadly aggression" not encompass not only the death but all actions that took place? Murder wasn't the only thing happening.--Львівське (talk) 08:53, 4 August 2009 (UTC)

"...the brutality of the UPA there is unparalleled in the 20th century in Europe" how can you honestly say that?

Double Memory[edit]

Your deletion in Massacres of Poles in Volhynia of Double Memory section is based on an invalid assumption that there was consensus for removal. Please re-read the talk section. The material is verified in a very reliable source. Please do not remove it again without discussion. Bobanni (talk) 01:48, 14 August 2009 (UTC)

An exciting opportunity to get involved![edit]


As a member of the Aviation WikiProject or one of its subprojects, you may be interested in testing your skills in the Aviation Contest! I created this contest, not to pit editor against editor, but to promote article improvement and project participation and camraderie. Hopefully you will agree with its usefulness. Sign up here, read up on the rules here, and discuss the contest here. The first round of the contest may not start until September 1st-unless a large number of editors signup and are ready to compete immediately! Since this contest is just beginning, please give feedback here, or let me know what you think on my talkpage. - Trevor MacInnis contribs 23:04, 22 August 2009 (UTC)

Komański, Siekierka[edit]

O co chodzi? Przecież to źródło oparte na zeznaniach świadków wydarzeń opublikowanych w karcie. Na ich książki powołuje się np. Motyka w Ukraińskiej partyzantce. Jeśli masz jakieś do nich zastrzeżenia to powiedz jakie a nie usuwaj bez słowa ich jako źródła. Są na pewno dobrym źródłem bo opartym bezpośrednio na świadkach.--Paweł5586 (talk) 09:50, 30 August 2009 (UTC)

Jak sobie wyobrażasz badania obu stron w obecnej sytuacji na Ukrainie w ogóle negowane są zbrodnie? Kto w nich by uczestniczył nacjonaliści z Tarnopola którzy mają tam 35% poparcia i protestowali przeciw Hucie Pieniackiej? Siekierka i Komański są pionierami w tej kwestii, ale to nie przyczyna by ich negować. Póki nie ma lepszych opracowań, należy się na nich oprzeć, tak jak Motyka. Siemaszko też była krytykowana za 60 tys na Wołyniu itd. a obecnie ta liczba jest uznana powszechnie. Weź też pod uwagę że większość ukraińskich historyków tak i jak rosyjskich wybiela swoich. Pozdrawiam serdecznie--Paweł5586 (talk) 20:50, 30 August 2009 (UTC)

FAR of Invasion of Poland (1939)[edit]

I have nominated Invasion of Poland (1939) for Featured article review due to a number of, hopefully, resolvable issues that exist in the article. --Labattblueboy (talk) 02:42, 1 September 2009 (UTC)

May I ask why you undid my edit to the article? It was made in good faith to remove material that failed with regards to 1c of the feature article criteria and I suspect POV. In the future please do not reinsert material unless cited. --Labattblueboy (talk) 13:02, 1 September 2009 (UTC)
I can understand your reservation but the content was largely uncited and didn't appear to make a whole lot of sense. This being said, I certain want to work cooperatively in improving the article, or moreso maintaining its FA level. If my future edits step on any toes please let me know. --Labattblueboy (talk) 16:45, 1 September 2009 (UTC)

WikiProject Poland Newsletter • January 2014 • Issue II[edit]

WikiProject Poland Newsletter • January 2014 • Issue II
For our freedom and yours

Welcome to the second issue of WikiProject Poland newsletter, the Monitor (named after the first Polish newspaper).

Our Project has been operational since 1 June, 2005, and also serves as the Poland-related Wikipedia notice board. I highly recommend watchlisting the Wikipedia:WikiProject Poland page, so you can be aware of the ongoing discussions. We hope you will join us in them, if you haven't done so already! Unlike many other WikiProjects, we are quite active; we get close to a hundred discussion threads each year and we do a pretty good job at answering all issues raised. Last year we were featured in the Signpost, and our interviewer was amazed at our activity. In the end, however, even as active as we are, we are just a tiny group - you can easily become one of our core members!

In addition to a lively encyclopedic, Poland-related, English-language discussion forum, we have numerous useful tools that can be of use to you - and that you could help us maintain and develop:

  • we have an active assessment department. As of now, our project has tagged almost 83,000 pages as Poland-related - that's an improvement of over 3,000 new pages since the last newsletter. Out of which 30 still need a quality assessment, and 2,000, importance assessment. We have done a lot to clear the backlog here (3 years ago those numbers were 1,500 and 20,000, respectively). Can you help assess a few pages?
    • assessing articles is as easy as filling in the class= and importance= parameters on the talk page in the {{WPPOLAND|class=|importance=}} template. See here for a how-to guide.
  • once an article has an assessment template, it will appear in our article alerts and news feed, which provides information on which Poland-related articles are considered for deletion, move, or are undergoing a Good or Featured review. Watchlisting that feed, in addition to watchlisting our project's main page, is a good way to make sure you stay up to date on most Poland-related discussions.
  • you can also see detailed deletion discussions at Wikipedia:WikiProject Deletion sorting/Poland (which is a good place to watchlist if you just want to stay up to date on possible deletions of Poland-related content)
  • we have also begun B-class quality reviews on our talk page, and if our activity increases, hopefully we will be able to institute our own A-class quality reviews. As of now, we have about 500 C-class articles in need of a B-class review. If you'd like to help with them, instructions for doing B-class reviews are to be found in point 10 of our assessment FAQ. In addition to this automated list, you are also encouraged to help review articles from our B-class reviews requested list found here.
  • also, those articles will be included in our cleanup listing, which allows us to see which top-importance articles are in need for attention, and so on. We have tens of thousands articles in need of cleanup there, so if you ever need something to do, just look at this gigantic list. (I am currently reviewing the articles tagged with notability, either proving them notable or nominating for deletion; there are still several dozens left if you want to help!).
  • did you know that newly created Poland-related articles are listed here. They need to be reviewed, often cleaned-up, occasionally nominated for deletion, and their creators may need to be welcomed and invited to our project if they show promise as new authors of Poland-related content.
  • we are maintaining a Portal:Poland
  • automated Wikipedia:WikiProject Poland/Popular pages lists the most popular Poland-related pages from the previous month(s)
  • Breaking news: we are looking for a Wikipedian in Residence for the New York City area. See Wikipedia:GLAM/Józef Piłsudski Institute of America for details.

This is not all; on our page you can find a list of useful templates (including userboxes), awards and other tools!

With all that said, how about you join our discussions at WT:POLAND? Surely, there must be something you could help others with, or perhaps you are in need of assistance yourself?

It took me three years to finish this issue. Feel free to help out getting the next one before 2017 by being more active in WikiProject management :)

Belzec and Sobibór[edit]

Hello, Lysy. Please stop changing these redirects. Belzec is known by its Polish name as well. The camp was located in Poland.Hoops gza (talk) 21:31, 24 March 2014 (UTC)

Auschwitz is an exception to the rule and therefore a poor example. Auschwitz is almost universally known as referring to the concentration camp. Auschwitz concentration camp is not referred to by the Polish name of the town it is near. It's just the way it is. Belzec by comparison is little known and would frequently be searched by its Polish name. The very lede sentence in the Belzec article clearly states that it is also called Bełżec. This is not an exact science, that's for sure.Hoops gza (talk) 21:52, 24 March 2014 (UTC)
